Sims 123

Those who engage in contemplative practice know its positive effects, but documenting its value to others is not always easy. Several Syracuse University editors and authors have contributed to a new volume, Empirical Studies of Contemplative Practices. Drawing on a range of disciplines, the volume explores the question of how to research contemplative practice to better illustrate its value.  

An event celebrating the book’s publication will be held Friday, February 15 from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm in Sims 123. The panelists are Dr. Joshua Felver of Psychology, Dr. Rachel Razza of Falk College, and Dr. Qiu Wang of the School of Education.

Colleagues from across the university are invited to converse with the SU authors at the reception to follow at 1:30 pm.

Copies of the book will be for sale at the event.

The event is sponsored by the Humanities Center, the Contemplative Collaborative, the Department of Communication and Rhetorical Studies, among others.

Nora Newcombe, the Laura H. Carnell Professor of Psychology at Temple University and President-Elect of the Federation of Associations of Behavioral and Brain Sciences will be giving this year's Slepecky Lecture.

The talk will be on Spatial Learning for STEM Success.

Abstract:
Spatial thinking concerns the locations of objects, their shapes, their relations, and the paths they take as they move. Spatial skills are as important as literacy and numeracy and play a central role in achievement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). This talk will review research showing that (a) spatial thinking and STEM learning are related, and (b) spatial thinking is malleable. It will go on to evaluate two strategies for using these findings in education. Strategy 1 involves direct training of spatial skills. Strategy 2 involves spatializing the curriculum, using tools including spatial language, maps, diagrams, graphs, analogical comparison, physical activity that instantiates scientific or mathematical principles, gesture and sketching. Research continues to evaluate the effectiveness of the efforts and explore mechanisms.
